Cross-Cultural Inter-Spiritual Creative Connector
As a child I remember saying, “When I grow up, I am going to help people be the best they can be.” Something inside me knew that living in a home where I was shamed for being overweight, labeled “broigus” (sullen) and “underachiever,” and told I just wasn’t good enough no matter what I did was not right.
I took those message to heart, as a child does, and struggled plenty to trust myself, despite accomplishing a fair deal in my youth. That drive to help people helped me too. As a result, I spent a great deal of my life curious about how I, and we, could be the best we can be.
Healing and creativity were always related for me. As a voice major and music therapist, I helped students feel better about themselves through music. Later I would study social work counseling and then Transpersonal Psychology. I learned how ritual, creative expression, and teachings of wisdom traditions could help us reach our full potential.
Living in Tokyo, Japan for five years as a cross-cultural trainer and creating my own corporate training company back in the USA allowed me to work with hundreds of families in transition. I helped them appreciate other cultures and expand their perspectives as they adjusted to a whole new way of life in a different culture.
Life was good in many ways as I traveled extensively, helping to lead workshops and speak at conferences worldwide. After 33 years of marriage, however, I knew I needed to leave. This was the most difficult transition of my life, but with all I knew about collaboration and trusting my inner wisdom, I was able, with my ex-husband, to navigate our divorce in as conscious and creative way as possible.
My creativity soared. One day, when I asked, “What’s next?” I heard in my ear, “You’ll go to the Hebrew texts and paint.” What? Well, I did it. I spent 30 days in silence and created The Alphabet of Vibration art series. And I am so excited that I did, as these inter-spiritual Hebrew Letter Mandalas for Peace are powerful, energetic symbols for meditation and healing that bring joy to me and many people.
But my struggle to trust myself fully continued until I found the Dalian Method. Finally I found a way to quickly heal from the unconscious beliefs I had taken on from childhood, society, and my ancestry. With this self-healing method I learned to peel away layers of self-doubt and shame that caused me to keep looking outside of myself for answers.
Today I have the all confidence I need to bring my life and professional experiences together to help you be the best you can be! I know times are tough these days. Many of us are experiencing a great deal of change. I remain optimistic. I love life and I know my inclusive and expansive spiritual perspective has helped me weather very big storms in my life. It is my pleasure to work with people and help them on their journeys so together we can create a world that works for all.
Thanks to the Dalian Method and getting to work with so many wonderful people, I feel more happy, free, and productive than ever! By using the skills I learned to move through transition and by becoming aware of and healing core beliefs that kept me stuck, I’ve been able to:
Access creativity I had suppressed and paint a colorful, inter-spiritual form of the Hebrew alphabet, The Alphabet of Vibration.
Have an international network of curious, talented, and innovative friends and colleagues
Become a facilitator of The Dalian Method, the miraculous healing methodology that helped me heal trauma I couldn’t get past no matter what I tried
Feel truly happy, living my soul’s purpose on a daily basis as much as possible
Do you want to permanently heal old wounds and contribute your best to our world?
Here are some ways we can work together.
